On the Lay of Intoxication

On the lay of intoxication,
Drunken from the wine of Eden,
Couldn’t lift the eye lids of her lights,
As weights were upon them,
Yet depicts pleasure in the expression of her look,
Co’s she’s eaten from the seed of multiplication,
Know not if the seed dies into creature,
As the unborn embryo awaits,
